And 25 for Metz. The Messines, who were the defending champions, won the 25th title of champion of France in their history. This title was officially acquired this Saturday. As part of the 21st day of the Butagaz Energie League, Metz, which is none other than the most successful club in France, made short work of the Celles-sur-Belles club at home ( 42-20). That is a 19th victory in as many matches already played.
In the classification of the French women’s handball championship, Metz has a total of 57 points and can therefore no longer be caught up by its runner-up, namely the Brest club, which has a total of 50 points, which still has four games to play. with a particular unfavorable difference and which won, earlier in the day, on the side of Toulon (21-25).
On the way to an unprecedented treble?
The 2022-23 season of Lorraine is not over yet. Indeed, the Messines can still potentially aim for an unprecedented hat-trick before this summer. The two trophies they have left are, first, the Coupe de France. The final of this competition will take place on Saturday June 10, and Metz will face the Paris 92 club. There will also and above all be the Champions League. A trophy that still eludes the protégés of Emmanuel Mayonnade.
At the moment, the current campaign is almost perfect, with only a small loss to report. The only one of the season, all competitions combined. It already dates from last October, against Esbjerg. But that did not prevent Metz from finishing at the top of their group. The quarter-finals will take place on Saturday April 29 and Sunday May 7, with opposition planned for Metz against the Hungarians of Ferencvaros.
